Cyclopean Canceled

Cyclopean, the lovecraftian RPG project over at Iron Tower Studios, has been canceled and is now officially dead.

There it is.

A couple of months ago, I had to look at where I was at with Cyclopean.  I felt that five years was a reasonable amount of time to develop a turn-based indie CRPG and August marked my first two years working on the game.  I asked myself:  Is the game 40% complete?  No.  Is the game 20% complete?  No.  Surely the game must be at least 10% finished?  Perhaps, but entirely on the writing side.  What I've got is basically a ton of writing and nothing else.  And Ted, still the only other member of Team Omega, just isn't able to dedicate those 20+ hours/week to keep things rolling.  Vince has got a relentless, driving ambition to see AoD completed, but I need to know my investment of hundreds-into-thousands of hours is actually going to result in a finished product, and I don't have that confidence in Cyclopean, in fact nothing near it.

So a big thank you to all the people who liked the writing, who like Lovecraft, and who support ITS generally!  Vince really gave me a great home here while it lasted.  I have another less (much less) ambitious project in mind, one that I can actually anticipate will see the light of day, in part because I don't need to recruit anyone else to do it.  But I'm not going to reveal it until I have an Alpha build and need testers.  I don't want a reputation for stringing people along.

One more thing:  good luck to the other teams and their talented members under the banner.  Go indie!
That's too bad, I was looking forward to it.
